H2020-NMPB-08: Innovative joining process for the manufacturing of long-term media tight: seeking partners in material design and manufacturing of elastic intermediary layer.
Summary:
A German University is preparing a project proposal under the call NMPB-08-2016 "Affordable weight reduction of high-volume vehicles and components". Aim of the project is the development of an innovative joining process for the manufacturing of long-term media tight, i. e. leak-proof metal-polymer hybrid parts with an adhesively bonded intermediary layer. Partners with expertise in material design and manufacturing of elastic intermediary layer as well as end users are sought.
Description:
A German University is looking for further partners for a project proposal under the call NMPB-08-2016 "Affordable weight reduction of high-volume vehicles and components taking into account the entire life-cycle".

The demand for efficient lightweight construction is further increasing to minimise the impact of vehicles on the environment. As mentioned in the topic, weight reduction is a principal lever to improve energy efficiency, performance, and range of vehicles while reducing their impact on the environment.
Multi-material design allows for the property profiles of the composite partners to be used synergistically. There is vast potential shown in the polymer-metal-hybrids for both weight and cost reduction along with a simultaneous increase in the mechanical characteristics.
With media bearing parts, like those found in vehicle powertrains, the composite´s tightness against leaking presents special difficulties as these parts are under high stresses from high temperatures, chemical corrosion, and mechanical strain. Preliminary experiments clearly indicated the difficulties of lasting tightness between the metal and polymer components, especially after cyclic temperature and media stress variations. Therefore, currently available hybrid parts in the temperature and media load domains have to be manufactured through consecutive assembly steps with a high percentage of manual work which the following research and innovation action seeks to change entirely.

Goals and Procedures of the H2020-project:
With a holistic approach in mind, the project is devised by taking into account the entire value chain and life-cycle of the process and its products. The topics materials, tools, process, assembly, and end-of-life are fully covered while considering the use of recycled materials.

The overall technical goal of the planned project is the development of these innovative joining processes for the manufacturing of media tight metal-polymer composites with a long term adhesively bonded intermediate layer. The intermediate layer shall function
- as the material seam between the polymer and metal components and
- compensate the different thermal expansions and shall transfer various forces without wear.

Manufacturing of these hybrid parts is to take place entirely within the same injection moulding machine during the whole process cycle. The following two basic approaches are to be pursued:

(1) By utilising an intermediary layer of foil with reactive layers, a reaction occurs due to the energy introduced during the injection process which allows for an adhesive bond with the metal surface.

(2) Through defined precision opening of the injection mould following the injection of the thermoplastic component onto the metal insert, a gap is created. This gap is then subsequently filled with a reactive intermediary layer by means of an auxiliary aggregate, allowing for an adhesive bond between the two main components.

The innovation of the planned developments lies in the manufacturing of long term media tight polymer-metal-hybrids. The envisaged third component between metal and polymer (foil or injected component) ensures the composite´s tightness despite interference of temperature and media stress as well as mechanical stress.

The University is looking for companies or institutes with expertise for the material design and manufacturing of the elastic intermediary layer. Further, end users from the automotive sector (OEMs or suppliers) are sought for implementing hybrid parts in their power train systems.

Deadline for EOIs: 8th January 2016
Deadline for the call: 21th January 2016

Advantages and Innovations:
The innovation of the planned developments lies in the manufacturing of long term tight polymer-metal-hybrids.

Through an innovative manufacturing process (insertion of a reaction foil or injection of a plastic, equally reactive component) a special focus is laid on a practically oriented production process in order to allow for an economically feasible wide scale implementation thereof.
